Fire Rabbits spawn one at a time around the lava pool on the top of Mount Sho which is located on Isamu-Jima in Tokuno Islands. Hunting Fire Rabbits is popular due to the rare drop of Animal Pheromone which is used to make Hitching Posts (replica).
They are very fast and tough little critters but do little damage, when they are about to die they tend to dig a hole and burrow away.
Pets will not attack them, although a simple way around this is to issue the "all guard" command and then attack the Rabbit so the pet will automatically also attack it.

One of the best ways found of killing these is to use the spam attack trick; spamming attack on the critter keeps it close to a player, which enables a pet to do more damage and stops the rabbit from escaping(I have never lost a rabbit down a hole using this trick; I usually use a Greater Dragon but it still takes a while, Magery is almost useless due to its high magic resist but i have seen warriors successfully kill them).
Use a Cu Sidhe set him to guard you. Cu's have cold damage. Very easy.
